Santiago High School was opened on September 5, 1995 in Corona, California. The school was located on South Main Street until its current campus was built on Foothill Parkway and opened in 1999 to accommodate a growing student population. The old campus on South Main Street was then converted into the nearby Citrus Hills Intermediate School, which was established the same year.[3][4]

Performing arts


Santiago High School offers several acclaimed performing arts programs for students to participate in, some of which include a theater program, a choir program, and an instrumental music program.

Instrumental music program


Santiago is home to an award-winning instrumental music program known as the BOSS (Bands and Orchestras of Santiago Sharks). It consists of four large concert bands, a string orchestra, several jazz ensembles, a marching band and drumline, and a championship color guard.[5]

The BOSS is a three-time participant of the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California, having marched in 2013, 2018, and 2024. The group also competes at several SCSBOA parade band reviews each year.[6][7][8]
